Project Info COMPLETE Project Title
ZigBee-based DR Residential Pool PumpsProject Number DR12.51 Organization SCE End-use Process Loads Sector Residential Project Year(s) 2012 - 2013
The purpose of this project is to perform laboratory and field tests of commercially available pool pumps and pool pump controllers designed to enable curtailment of pool pump loads in response to DR event (curtailment) or pricing signals. This work is a follow-up to prior studies that estimated the potential for residential pool pumps to act as a DR resource. This project will include field trials of a pool pump with integrated DR capabilities to assess functionality, as well as retrofit solutions that would add DR capabilities to existing pool pumps.
